I was totally unaware of the existence of this video. Mind-fucking-blowing song.
OiNK, which is one of the most popular torrent sites out there (primarily for music) is letting all its users download as much as they want over the holiday season. Normally, they'd have to maintain an download/upload ratio greater than or equal to 0.5 (else they'd get castrated, drawn, quartered and fed to the dogs), but it's a free for all at the moment. To quote:
Between the 22nd of December and the 1st of January GMT (inclusive), downloading will not adversely affect your share ratio.
We will still be recording uploaded amounts, but ignoring downloaded.
I just finished listening to the Gears of War demo that's available on Megadeth.com, and what a fucking disappointment it has been :/ I hope that it sounds so lame, weak and poppy due to it being the title track of the console game of the same name :| Or maybe the demo doesn't represent the final cut.. One can only hope.
The lyrics sound like they were written by Justis or Electra Mustaine (his kids) :S An excerpt (the chorus):
Smart bombs, precision guided armament
A more sophisticated way to end up dead
VAN HALEN has finally found it's new bassist - and it looks like the rock gods are keeping the band a family affair.
TMZ is first to confirm that Van Halen has hired 15-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen - the son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen and estranged wife Valerie Bertinelli, and nephew of drummer Alex Van Halen - as the new bassist for the band.
